“I’m finally able to tell you … that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast! It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There.’ My six year old self is on the ceiling — heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it,” Watson
I guess my first reaction to this is why did it take so long? Why has it taken so damn long to make a live action movie of ‘Beauty and the Beast’, it is such a classic. I would say it makes my top five favorite Disney movies for sure. My personal favorite is Lion King, but Beauty and the Beast is right up there. Well that is a lie, it is number five out of my top five. This isn’t about my personal favorites though guys! Look at who Belle is going to be!
Yes, I am all about this casting new, Emma Watson is absolute gold. I think that having her be a Disney princess is one of the smartest moves that Disney could have done. Everyone loves Emma Watson. Do you know anyone who hates this little English princess? Think about it. Bet you can’t think of anyone who openly dislikes Emma.
I am a bit iffy about Disney doing a live action thing, it didn’t go so well for that Snow White movie with Julia Roberts, but we can all have hope! If they are remaking Star Wars then they probably know what they are doing for this movie!
I want to know what you guys think though! Are you guys a fan of this casting? Plus, who is going to be Gaston and who will be Beast? Those are all questions to ask!
